It has been almost 15 years since Ilia Kulik captured the gold medal at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan.
In the ensuing years he has become one of the most sought-after professionals on the international circuit.
Kulik began another chapter in his life recently, adding the title of businessman to his résumé.
A little more than two years ago, Kulik imagined a venue where figure skaters could enjoy the luxury of having everything they needed for success available at their fingertips. A facility solely focused on figure skating, with great ice, a dance studio and off-ice training facilities.
